A new development in 2013 has seen Linburg form an operating alliance with Kuoni and Gullivers Travel Associates.
Gullivers is part of the worldwide Travelport Group that contains twenty of the leading travel brands. Kuoni, founded in Switzerland in 1906 by Alfred Kuoni, has long been synonimous with high quality travel and brought that quality to the UK in 1965.
Whilst there are many Coach Companies in the UK., Kuoni & GTA reported that finding those with sufficiently high standards of reliability and professionalism to be entrusted with their prestigious Incoming Tourist business was a problem.
They turned to Linburg to help alleviate that difficulty.
Linburg Director, Gill Dawson, was delighted to be able to sign-off a two-year Contract to provide coaches and drivers to carry tourists from around the World on tours of The British Isles for both Kuoni and GTA. Gill announced in March 2013 that such was the importance of the new clients, that a further development of the coach fleet would see the delivery of another two high-quality, air-conditioned Van Hool tour-coaches from VDL-Van Hool coach concessionaires, Arriva Bus & Coach.
“We have continued our standardisation on the VDL-Van Hool product. The quality is second-to-none and we like the green-credentials of the smooth and powerful “Euro 5” engines. In between commitments with Kuoni and GTA, these coaches will be available for hire as part of our Private hire Fleet from our Derby and Sheffield depots” added Gill.
